A good bet?

homefarm2The Home Farm is from South Eastern Australia and in this case the year 2008. It’s a remarkable blend of Semillon, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc. It’s also a decent 13%. They’re quite right on the bottle talking about passionfruit flavours on the body, but it’s also highly complemented with melons. The nose is a bit like rubber and the finish is crisp and dry, without any hint of lasting sweetness. Pretty good eaten with my salad and slice of ham, although not cheap at £6 per bottle. It would certainly go down well with a conoisseur at a party, so if you want to make an impression, it might be a good buy – if you can find it; I’ve never seen it elsewhere.
